While the names of programs like "Disc Opponent #1" and "Young Man on Recognizer" are not in the credits and were never spoken aloud in Legacy, these programs were named on the scoreboards for the disc-wars and lightcycle matches they were in. Is this information, when specifically identifiable with the program in question (i.e. by matching scoreboard number to helmet number), canonical enough to include in the pages for these programs? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Infiniteviking (talkcontribs)


For the most part, yes. They've been identified with these names in credits, so if that character has a minor purpose within the story, then they have a page. There are a few however, that shouldn't have their own pages and those few are on my to-do list of things to sort out. ;) The ones that cannot be matched are the Disc Wars and Light Cycle Grid gladiator names, because when these are tracked down, they only show up continuity problems rather than name-to-face matches. -- WarBlade 07:25, May 25, 2011 (UTC)

After re-reading, my response wasn't entirely clear. Young Man on Recognizer etc. are named as such in the credits, so they're documented under those names. Eckery, Wulf, Backus etc. are from a pool of names that sometimes reappear after they should be derezzed, so they're too inconsistent to use for articles and most aren't really shown in the first place. -- WarBlade 14:12, May 25, 2011 (UTC)
